In the 1870 Federal Census of Altoona, 1st Ward, Blair County, Pennsylvania, enumerated on the 18th of June their household listed:
#322  325    Trout, John           65    m    Teamster            2500    100    Pennsylvania
                           Sydney L.    69    f     Keeping House                        Pennsylvania

        [others were listed in the 1870 household relationships unknown]

John and Sydney were enumerated in Altoona, 1st Ward, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 152, page 6D, on Green Avenue, on the 3rd of June, a few households away from their son, Phillip Trout.  John was age 74 and Sydney was age 79.

The children of John Trout, Jr. were:


5.1.3.1 Minerva Trout, was born in about 1828 in Pennsylvania.


5.1.3.2 Leah Trout, was born in about 1830 in Pennsylvania.

5.1.3.3 Phillip Trout, was born in about 1833 In Pennsylvania.  Phillip was married and living in Altoona, 1st Ward, Blair County, Pennsylvania, in the 1870 Federal Census, enumerated on the 13th of June (all the children had attended school in the past year):
#176  176  Trout, Philip    37    m    Teamster            100    Pennsylvania
                     Margaret    31     f     Keeping House             Pennsylvania
                      Anna M.    14     f     At Home                      Pennsylvania
                     Florence     12    m    At Home                      Pennsylvania
                    Durbin M.     7     m    At Home                      Pennsylvania
Phillip was recorded in his parent's household in 1860 at age 27.  The two oldest daughters may have been Margaret's from a previous marriage (or they were living separately and not as husband and wife in 1860).

In 1880 Phillip and Margaret were enumerated in Altoona, 1st Ward, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 152, page 6D, address 908 Green Avenue, on the 3rd of June (all family members and the birthplace of their parents were listed as Pennsylvania):

#101  114  Trout, Phillip  m    46                Laborer
                     Margaret   f     40    Wife      Housekeeper
               Lawrence [?]   m    22    Son       Laborer
                    Durbin M.   m    18    Son       Sewing Machine Agent
                      Howard    m    10    Son

In the 1900 Federal Census of Altoona, 2nd Ward, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 41, sheet 9B, recorded on the 5th of June, "Maggie Trout" was widowed and living with her two sons at 1006 7th Avenue (all birthplaces were listed as Pennsylvania):

#183  186  Trout, Maggie  Head    Feb   1839  61  Wd
                       Laurance  Son      Mch  1858  42    S    Polisher Brass
                         Howard  Son      July  1870  29    S    Teamster

In 1910 Maggie Trout, age 71 and widowed was living with her son Lawrence or Laurence (see below).  She stated that she had given birth to 5 children, three of whom were still living.

Their children were:

5.1.3.3.1 Anna M. Trout, was born in about 1856 in Pennsylvania (she may or may not have been Phillip's daughter).  "married Cyrus B. Labe b.c. 1852, living in 1944." Located in the 1900 and 1910 census...


5.1.3.3.2 Lawrence or Laurence Trout, was born in about 1858 in Pennsylvania (he may or may not have been Phillip's son).  "N. Laurence Trout" was still living with his mother in the 1910 Federal Census of Altoona, 2nd Ward, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 36, sheet 8A.  He listed his age as 52, marital status single, occupation as a laborer in R.R. Shops.


5.1.3.3.3 Durbin M. Trout, was born in about 1862 in Pennsylvania.  I did not locate Durbin in the 1900 census.  In 1910 he was living in the household of his son-in-law Walter G. Edwards, in Tyrone Borough, 4th Ward, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 87, sheet 12B, address 10th Street, recorded on the 22nd of April (Durbin and Salina both stated that they had been married for 25 years; there were no remarks concerning the number of children Salina had given birth to or that were still living; their daughter Emma and her husband Walter both stated that they had been married for 4 years; Emma also stated that she had given birth to 2 living children--):

#274  289  Edwards, Walter G.  Head  27       North Carolina  Superintendent Quarries
                                 Emma    Wife  23       Pennsylvania    None
                               Belmont   Son     2       Pennsylvania    None

                           Salina   Mother in Law 46  Pennsylvania    None
                              May   Sister in Law   20  Pennsylvania    None

Salina Trout was widowed in the 1920 and living with her daughter May, who had married and had a family (see below).  Their two known daughters were:

5.1.3.3.3.1 Emma Trout, was born in about 1887 in Pennsylvania.  Emma and her husband Walter G. Edwards moved to Virginia, where there were enumerated in the 1920 Federal Census of Tanners Creek, Norfolk County, ED# 227, sheet 12A, address Avenue C, on the 17th and 19th of January:

#192 [?]  Edwards, Walter G.    Head    37    North Carolina    Carpenter Contractor

                             Belmont    Son      13    Pennsylvania
                              Thelma  daughter 11    Pennsylvania

Their two children were:

5.1.3.3.3.1.1 Belmont Edwards, was born in about 1907 in Pennsylvania (he was living with his sister in Norfolk, Virginia in 1930, see below).


5.1.3.3.3.1.2 Thelma Edwards, was born in about 1909 in Pennsylvania.  Thelma was married in the 1930 census and Living in Norfolk City, Voting Precinct #28, Norfolk County, Virginia, ED# 105, sheet 13B.  Her husband, Stanley J. Bailey, age 21, was employed as a detail draftsman in the Navy Yard.  Thelma was also 21.  Her brother, Belmont was also listed in the 1930 household, age 22 and listed his occupation as a manager of a fruit produce company.


5.1.3.3.3.2 May Trout, was born in about 1890 in Pennsylvania.  May was married and enumerated in the 1920 Federal Census of Altoona, 6th Ward, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 62, 1B, address 1908 8th Avenue, on the 2nd of January (last name is difficult to make out, it could easily also be Harner or a variation thereof):

#14  16  Hamer, W.J.    Head    31    Pennsylvania    Engine Dispatcher  Steam Railroad
                        May    Wife     30    Pennsylvania    None
                   John D.    Son        7    Pennsylvania    None
        Trout, Salina A. Mother in Law  55  Wd  Pennsylvania    None


5.1.3.3.4 Howard Trout, was born in about 1870 in Pennsylvania.  Howard was single at age 29 and living at home with his mother in the 1900 census (see above).


5.1.3.4 Mary Trout, was born in about 1836 in Pennsylvania.

5.1.3.5 James F. Trout, was born in about 1838 in Pennsylvania.  "married Mary E. Mills, b. in N.Y.  Her parents born in Scotland."

James F. Trout did marry, he first appeared as a head of household in the 1870 Federal Census of Altoona, 2nd Ward, enumerated on the 28th of June (all family members were born in Pennsylvania--Mary had check marks in the column noting that her father and mother were of foreign birth--Ermina, William and Jane Warner were continued on the next page):

#262  272    Trout, James F.    29    m    Engineer on R.R.       100
                             Mary E.    29     f     Keeping House
                         Thomas P.     7    m     at Home

                            William      1    m     at Home
                    Warner, Jane     55    f      at Home
In 1880 the Trout family was again recorded in Altoona, 2nd Ward, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 153, page 45B on the 7th of June:
#289  300  Trout, James   m   40                R.R. Engineer    Penna        Penna        Penna

                    William C.   m   11    Son       at School         Penna         Penna        Penna
Mary E. Trout, appears to be the same wife and I believe that the enumerator may have mistakenly or carelessly marked the birthplace of the children's mother incorrectly as "Penna" when it should have read New York.  Their three children were:
5.1.3.5.1 Thomas P. Trout, was born in about 1863 in Pennsylvania.  Thomas was listed in the 1900 Federal Census of Logan Township, Altoona, 2nd Ward, Precinct 1, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 39, sheet 7B, address 1210 Seventh St., enumerated on the 7th of June (Thomas and Clara both stated that they had been married for 13 years; Clara stated that she had given birth to 3 children, 2 of whom were still living):

#136  143  Trout, Thomas P.  Head  Nov 1862  37  Pennsylvania  Pennsylvania  New York  Engineer
                             Clara J.  Wife   July 1868  31  Pennsylvania  Ireland          Pennsylvania
                      Jayren B.  Son    Aug 1888  11   Pennsylvania  Pennsylvania  Pennsylvania  at School
                    Charles W.  Son    Nov  1894   5  Pennsylvania  Pennsylvania  Pennsylvania

Thomas and Clara were again enumerated living in Altoona City, 1st Ward, Precinct 2, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 35, sheet 4A in the 1910 Federal Census.  Recorded on the 19th and 20th of April, Thomas and Clara both stated that they had been married for 22 years; Clara stated that she had given birth to 4 children; 3 of whom were still living, she listed her age as 41.  Thomas listed his age as 46 and his occupation as an engineer at the P.R.R. Co.  Their oldest son, James (his name was not very legible in the 1900 census) age 21, single, listed his occupation as a steam heat plumber.  Their two younger boys, Charles, age 15 and the newest addition,  a son, Durbin was age 5.

In 1920, Clara J. Trout, age 49 and widowed was living in Altoona City, Ward 1, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 41, sheet 3A.  Sons: Charles W., age 25, occupation salesman [unreadable] and Durbin F. Trout, age 15, occupation window trimmer for a shoe store were still at home.  Clara was still widowed and living with her son Charles in 1930 (see below).  Their three known children were:

5.1.3.5.1.1 James Trout, was born in August 1888 in Pennsylvania.  T. James Trout--Plumbing, general contractor, Altoona.  "m. Marie Knott b. near Altoona.  Daughters Alice, Consuella, son Thomas married Clara Murphy."

5.1.3.5.1.2 Charles W. Trout, was born in November 1894 in Pennsylvania.  Charles was single and age 35 in the 1930 Federal Census of Altoona City, 12th Ward, Blair County, Pennsylvania, ED# 35, sheet 8B.  The street address listed was 516 Park Avenue, he gave his occupation as a wholesale plumbing merchant.  His mother, Clara J., widowed, was now age 60.

5.1.3.5.1.3 Durbin F. Trout, was born in about 1905 in Pennsylvania.  Durbin was married and lived just next door to his brother Charles and his mother in 1930.  Durbin's address in 1930 was 514 Park Avenue:

#182  187  Trout, Durbin F.  Head         28         Pennsylvania  plumber plumbing shop
                            Jane C.  Wife         29          Pennsylvania
                        Shirley M.   Daughter    6          Pennsylvania
                           Maria L.   Daughter    4 5/12    Pennsylvania

5.1.3.5.2 Emma W. Trout, was born in about 1866 in Pennsylvania.  "m. Mann."

5.1.3.5.3 William C. Trout, was born in about 1869 in Pennsylvania.  "Daughters, Annie and Mary Trout.  Annie married Douherty, Mary married Harrison."

Well almost--this one is actually like solving a a riddle.  In the 1900 Federal census, William C. Trout and his wife Annie had no children and were enumerated in 8th Ward, Altoona, ED# 60, sheet 5A.  They both stated that they had been married for 8 years.  William was employed as a RR brakeman, their street address was listed as 609 Eighth Avenue.  Willaim gave his date of birth as July 1870, Annie listed her birth as April 1871.

It appears that it was William that married Annie Dougherty, who was the daughter of Mary.  In the 1910 Federal Cenus of Altoona, 8th Ward, Blair County, ED# 53, sheet 12B, enumerated on the 27th of April, his household listed (William and Annie both stated that they had been married for 17 years [~1893]; Annie stated that she had given birth to no living children; Annie mother, Mary, stated that she was widowed and had given birth to 8 children, six of whom were still living; all birthplaces were recorded as Pennsylvania):

#245  281  Trout, William C.    Head     41   Brakeman
                            Annie H.    Wife     41    none
    Dougherty, Mary E.  Mother-in-law    78    none
                William T.  Brother-in-law   36    Laborer (Blacksmith)

In the 1920 census the only change was that I could now make out the street address for William and Annie.  Their address in 1910 and 1920 was listed as 609 Eighth Ave.  Annie's mother, Mary, and her brother, William, were also listed in the 1920 household.  In the 1930 Federal Census of Altoona, 2nd Ward, Blair County, ED#6, sheet 13B, address 718 Fifth Avenue William was widowed and living with his brother-in-law, Albert Stonebraker.  Albert and his wife, Mary Stonebraker were also listed in the 1900 and 1910 censuses living just a few doors away from William and Annie Trout.  Mary Stonebraker may have been Annie's sister, she doesn't seem to fit as William's sister (all birthplaces were recorded as Pennyslvania):

#314  328  Stonebraker, Albert C.    Head               70    Wd     Retired          PRR Company
                                Charles W.    Son                 46    S       Clerk             Grocery Store

                        Trout, William C.  Brother in law     60    Wd    Brakeman       P.RR Company


5.1.3.6 Thompson Trout b. 1845 d. 1890 Altoona, name is listed as "Mitchell Trout" on chart [at the Library in Harrisburg]."

For the sake of argument, there is a Mitchell Trout, born in about 1845 in Pennsylvania, listed in Altoona, Blair County, in the 1880 census.  His occupation was listed as an Engineer, wife Mary, children: Secilia, age 12; Paul, age 9; Anna, age 8 and John age, 4.  Unconfirmed as a son, I can't see how he went from David to Thompson to Mitchell, however....more research needed on this one.

The authors of the manuscript also listed two addtional sons (not recorded in any of the census records):

5.1.3.7 Eduard Trout unm. Altoona Trevelled with Thuston, magician."

5.1.3.8 Harry Trout, daughters Camille and Elanore Trout.  Son Harry Paul Trout.
